Spooky Science

This week’s session was very spooky! We started with smoke bubbles; as they popped on the floor the smoke eerily crept along the carpet. We then practised our fine motor skills by picking spiders from their webs. We watched some Science magic as Nina made a spider’s web from a polystyrene cup.


Next, we used static electricity to make ghosts and bat wings spookily dance around. It was fun to see whose hair was best for rubbing the balloons against!


After that, we all had little cauldrons and made our own witches brew with bicarbonate of soda and coloured vinegar. They bubbled over the top and made a real mess.


Lastly, we predicted what would happen if we mixed bicarbonate of soda and vinegar together inside a sealed bag - we were right; there was an explosion!
